Rawalpindi - A court of law sent two police officers of Sadiqabad police station, who were booked in a bank ATM fraud case, to Adyala Jail on 14-day judicial remand, informed police investigators here on Saturday.

The cashier, the main accused of the bank fraud case, is being grilled by police after getting his three days physical remand from a court for his involvement in stealing amount from a bank ATM, police added. Police also declared Operational Manager Amina Bibi, who was also applicant in the case, as innocent.

Two days before, an operational manager of a private bank approached Sadiqabad police by tabling a written application in which she stated that Rs 1,614,000 had been stolen from ATM of the bank mysteriously. She nominated bank cashier Mehsi Shah as main accused. Police while filing case held Mehdi Shah who during probe revealed that the operational manager was also co-accused with him in the fraud. Police also nabbed the operational manager and shifted her to women police station.

In the meanwhile, the two investigators ASIs Riaz and Zameer recovered Rs 1.5 million from the cashier. However, they allegedly tried to give a clean chit to the accused after receiving bribe. The DSP New Town Circle came into action and raided at police station while seizing the amount from trunks of both police officers. The DSP inserted names of police officers in the same case and locked them up.  A team of police led by SI Muhammad Ashraf produced the two police officers ASIs Riaz and Azam before the court of Civil Judge Mehmood Azam.
